What is Social Bookmarking / Backlinking?

What is backlinking? What is social bookmarking? They are one in the same to answer that question really quick. Let me break it down for you real quick and easily. You write an article or you have some type of internet content that you want to get more exposure to. For example I have wrote a hub here on Hubpages entitled "Top 3 Google AdSense Revenue Sharing Websites!". Now I want people to read the article that I just wrote. It is a common misconception that all one has to do is write something on the internet and it will go viral. A funny myth if it were that easy we would all be rich and our economy would tank. The people making money selling the idea are the only ones profiting off of it. So just follow me and I can really help you avoid their little money pit traps so you can make yourself some decent money on the internet. So now that you know that social bookmarking and backlinking are one in the same, I will now refer to backlinking simply as Social bookmarking.

The Power of Promotion!

So back to what I was saying with the hub I created. Simply creating a great article on the internet on how to earn income on the internet is not good enough to get your article read. You could write a new scientific theory to change the world on the internet; but if you do not know how to promote your writing on the internet then your work does nothing for you as it will never get read. There are many ways to promote your own articles and other content you write on the internet, it is really easy when you understand the basic principle. What is the basic principal in making income online by writing your own quality content on the internet? Self promotion! You have to sell your idea as if it were a third person looking at your work and loving it.

I often hear that I am a marketing genius, and I often turn down many jobs with high paying corporations in order to seek my own fame and fortune on the internet. This is what you have to know how to do well in order to promote your own content through social bookmarking. Am I really a marketing genius? Who cares! You now question weather I am or not so perhaps you would go read my articles to see how good or bad I really am. That is the cornerstone of marketing yourself and your content on the internet. You have to stir up controversy and ask questions as an unbiased third party. If you can do this well you will find success on the internet. So you write an article about the health benefits of Green Tea. How do you social bookmark such an article? Well you could go about this many ways. I perhaps would say something like this. The cure for cancer? Health benefits of Green Tea Consumption! You might be surprised by what you learn! Backlinking is as easy as 1,2,3 now that you know what the fundamentals are you need to know where to go to backlink your quality online content.

There are literally thousands of social bookmarking websites on the internet today. In order for me to go through them all it would take me a long time. Not only that you would look at them and most likely have a panic attack and give up on the internet altogether. I have come across those backlinking / social bookmarking websites online. They have tons of links / URL's to choose from and tell you nothing about what SEO and social bookmarking are. Do you know why this is? This is because most of those URL's have a referral link within them. So when you sign up you make that person money. Whenever you see a link that looks something like this then you know the creator of the website you are looking at is attempting to profit off of you. The URL will look like this Or

Notice the _ whenever you see an underscore followed by writing and or letters right after the .com then someone is going to make money off of you. So do not follow those users listen to the expert who is merely attempting to help you make this stuff as easy as 1,2,3!

So now you have tons of knowledge as to how to promote your content online and what to avoid on the internet. So now the question is what are the best websites to backlink your online content? The websites are as follows.

AdSense Sharing Social Bookmarking Websites. These are websites that you can use in order to promote your online content which also share AdSense income. So if you use Google AdSense then you do not want to miss out on these Social Bookmarking Websites!

When I talk about Best Reviewer and Deeplinking here is what I am talking about. Best Reviewer allows you to create something called a "Top". So for example if you have a hub such as mine up above "Top 3 Google AdSense Revenue Sharing Websites" you have the ability to really backlink your online content. Here is an example "Best Reviewer Top 3 AdSense Income Sharing Websites!". What you will notice when you look at the website is that I have my backlinks backlinked here, as well as the original article backlinked. So I created the article "Top 3 Google AdSense Revenue Sharing Websites!" here on hubpages.

After I wrote the article I then went over to Shetoldme and placed a backlink with a short summary of the main article. I then went to GoArticles and created another backlink to the main article. There I have two backlinks to the main article. From there I went to Best Reviewer and placed on each of the URL code they allow you to enter on each specific top of the top 3 (My Top 3 where the best AdSense Sharing Websites) and placed a link to Shetoldme, GoArticles, and the main article. I had three links and deeplinked all three of them on the one website. It is as simple as that.

      I can see that someone could be overwhelmed by all this, I find that it is easier and better to do this type of thing after a while. Writing and promoting create a kind of histeria that is counter productive to both. Thanks,
